Subject: A comment and a question
This commercial is notable for featuring Rex Marshall, who was a prolific personality in commercials. If you watch a lot of old 1950s/early 1960s commercials, you'll see him regularly.

Here, he tells us about "special low prices" being offered. In typical mid-century fashion, he calls Maxwell House "the amazing coffee discovery".

Speaking of fashion, I have a question. Rex is wearing a suit, and I wonder if anyone could tell me what colour it is. I see that kind of suit in old shows and photographs, but don't know what it looks like in colour.
